The maximum pre-tax contribution is $10,000. However, if you are part of the group that is
considered to be "highly compensated," you will be limited to a multiple (a couple of variations) of
the average contribution for the "lower compensated" group.

I thought the highly-compensated limits only applied to the allowed salary reduction agreement percentage and that the upper limits on total annual contributions were identical for all ($10K max elective deferral, total elective + match less than 25% of compensation).

It depends on the Company and the participation in the plan. My wife's company the max % is 12, at my company where they push the plan to the workers is 20
plus 100% match for the first 5%
